We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates. Our students will come from a diverse range of backgrounds and ethnicities, and experience no prejudice at admissions or during their studies related to their sexuality, disability or any other protected characteristic. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit, and all the best candidates will be interviewed. We are encouraging applications from under-represented groups.

The Sensor CDT is looking for candidates with backgrounds in the

  • natural sciences
    • e.g. biology, chemistry or physics,
  • engineering disciplines
    • e.g. electrical engineering, mechanical engineering,
    • computer science,
  • and medicine.

You would normally have obtained a first, or upper second class, honours degree (or equivalent) in your undergraduate course.

We believe you will thrive in the Sensor CDT if you are:

  • intellectually curious and interested to learn about science and technology beyond your core academic background
  • eager to work in cross-disciplinary teams and to contribute to a community of doctoral students
  • passionate about working towards a more healthy and sustainable future

Entry is competitive and we are looking for aspiration as well as intellectual aptitude. You should possess an innovative approach to problem solving, well developed technical skills, a willingness to work in a cross-disciplinary research setting, and an aspiration to become a world leader in the field of sensor innovation. It is important that you are open to learning new skills which might lie outside the field of your undergraduate degree.
